We have some breaking news this afternoon that seems to confirm that Blumhouse will begin filming a sequel to their 2018 Halloween, to be released in October 2020!
According to a new report from Collider, Blumhouse’s Halloween 2 is shaping up to start shooting after Labor Day, with Universal most likely planning to release the sequel on October 16, 2020, a date that had already been reserved for an untitled Blumhouse film.
Sources tell the outlet that Jamie Lee Curtis is expected to return as Laurie Strode, with Judy Greer and Andi Matichak also expected to reprise their respective roles as Laurie’s daughter and granddaughter, though their deals have yet to close.
Sources also tell Collider that Sources say that David Gordon Green wrote the script and is expected to return to direct the sequel.
Malek Akkad will produce alongside Jason Blum and Bill Block, with Danny McBride likely return as an executive producer alongside Green, Curtis, original Halloween director John Carpenter, and Blumhouse’s Couper Samuelson, among others.
We will of course be digging for more information/confirmation on all of this, but this is damn exciting! Give us your thoughts in the comments.
